Examples of hands on learning:
Science and Math:
We have a farm with grapes, apple and citrus trees and occasionaly chickens where children can learn about the parts of a plant, what plants and animals need to survive, discus and measure weather indicators and learn how to care for plants and animals. Children also grow their own plants as a project during the school year.
Math and Physical Education:
Building towers teaches us fine motor skills, spatial dynamics, colors, shapes and sizes, counting, problem solving, engineering and architecture, communication asking for pieces, sharing materials with others, self expression and so much more!! Who knew he was learning all these concepts? He's just having fun!!
Physical Education and Social Skills:
We have a special party days with different themes and even a bounce house. We get lots of physical exercise, group interactions, communication, learning to share, balance and coordination, cause and effect, and the joy of being a kid!!
